How to enable VP9 codec using the sdk

Hello team and happy new year!

In this commit the VP9 codec is forced disabled.
This is for performance reason in device side, right? Is there a proper way to do performance checking or benchmarking (more than just watching the device screen)?
What about more powerful devices, is there a way to override the config?
The setConfigOverride sdk api seems not pertinent as the initial state overwrite these value…

Thank you in advance for your help!
